Comfortable dress with soft material and stretch to make dancing a blast!

The dress was comfortable! Soft inner layer with stretch so it conformed to my shape and made dancing easy and fun! I received so many compliments! The material was a few layers thick so it was good for this winter weather formal party!

GORGEOUS!

Fit true to size, I'm 5'6, 138, lean body and wore the 6. Got lots of compliments. Thick layers so I didn't need spanx and could wear a strapless bra. I liked that the length ran to my knee, it felt comfortable and classy that way. Wish I owned this one, my favorite RTR dress to date!

The dress was great just not on me. Best thing I ever did was deliver in store and tried it on.

The black dress with the light lining was just not the look I was going for.

Shoulder detail made the dress

Great figure hugging black dress with nice detail with the flared shoulder. You won't stand out but neither will you look completely plain. Great for a conservative choice.

I wore this dress for the Bat Mitzvah . I got a lots of complements about the dress .

Pros. Very sliming dress. Comfortable . I got size 4&6 but 4 was little big on me. Longer than I expected. But still I loved it.

I received many compliments on this dress. I felt like a million bucks!

The fit was great- the material was super cozy and stretchy. I am always between sizes because my top is small. The six was too big around my chest but the four was perfect. I was able to feel comfortable all night long.

Felt amazingly small!

The fabric was so comfortable, stretch yet let me breath...and eat. Classy but not stiff. The burn out added a modern touch to the classic silhouette.

If unsure of size, order down. Great thick quality, perfect for colder weather event.

Super cute dress, just wish I would have ordered a 12 instead of 14. Thick material. Great little black dress. I'm contemplating buying this one. Wasn't my first choice, which I received and didn't like. The stylist at RTR was super helpful and sent two dresses to pick from. Great experience, as always!

This was a super fun, unique dress. Nothing else like it.

The fabric is fairly stretchy, which is nice. The shoulder really is BIG, but it fit my personality, which people were sure to point out. I may have been a bit overdressed for the casual wedding, but I had a great time wearing such a unique dress. The white underneath will show through once you put it on.

Great material, flattering dress

This dress is very classy & comfortable. The material has stretch to it, but is nice and thick. I am 6'1" and ended up not wearing this because the hips flared out too high for me. Luckily my backup dress fit well, but I could have worn this one in a pinch. I can imagine this dress would look good on almost every shape & size.

Masquerade Gala Fundraiser

Overall, the dress was terrific! The dress is well-made and feels great on the body--flattering and comfortable. I received a lot of compliments and really felt amazing wearing it. It fits fairly true to size (I wear a 6 or an 8 depending). I ended up wearing the six even though it was a tad more snug because the 8 was just a teeny bit loose in the bust. Some reviews mentioned the lace was a (little) bit worn and that was true of the 6--especially along the bottom. But only noticeable because I was looking for it. The fabric near the zipper's bottom is just a teeny bit thick, so it will bunch a bit right at that spot--but once I was in the dress and moving around, it never bothered me. The dress came a day later than promised but I wasn't worried since I had read the reviews and felt confident one of the two sizes I ordered would fit. I don't think you'll regret renting this one--seriously a comfortable flattering fit.

Pretty dress...so-so fit

The 8 was a little too snug in the stomach area but the 10 was a little loose in the bust. I liked it and it was comfortable but I seemed to be between sizes. Overall it was flattering and got lots of compliments!

First time user of RTR and am so happy!

I had two dresses delivered sizes 4 & 6. Oddly enough the size 6 was more of a snug fit (particularly around the bust) than the size 4. It has two linings in the dress so it felt good and covered up the little lump and bumps. It did sit very strangely at the bottom of the zip leaving a bulging look. This was the same on both of the dresses so I'd say it has something to do with the fabric. I enjoyed wearing this frock and I loved how easy it is to use RTR! Can't wait to hire my next dress! Thankyou Team RTR.

Gorgeous Dress for Work Party

Loved this dress! I'm 5'3' and this fell right below my knees. The top was a little big but overall the dress was comfortable. It had a nice comfortable stretch in it. I didn't wear a strapless bra.

Form fitting and flattering

This dress fit great! I wish there wasn't a snow storm on the east coast causing shipping delays, as this dress arrived 3 days after it was expected and I didn't get to wear it to my dear friend's wedding. But, I did get a chance to try it on before sending it back and I have told my husband that he needs to find somewhere to take me so I rent this dress again!

Great dress for being pregnant !!!

I was worried about renting while 5 months pregnant but this dress was so comfortable and had plenty of room for my bump! I felt classy and comfortable all night and got tons of compliments many people said they couldn't even tell I was pregnant lol! I rented the 6 and 4 and ended up wearing the 4! Great dress definitely rent if you want to feel great all night! The only negative was the side with the sipper bunched a little but I am not sure if that was due to my bump or the dress!

This dress was perfect . The material was a littler heavier than expected but overall easy to move around in. I had a work event followed by a birthday party and this dress was perfect for both.

This dress!!! Wow.

I'm pretty large chested (34F) and have trouble finding something that fits both upstairs and everywhere else. Well, this was the dress. Compliments all night and for days after. Very comfortable and concealed bulges well. I didn't even wear spanx! I did wear a convertible bra with one strap to help hold the girls up. Would LOVE to rent this one again.

So cute! Loved that the fabric was a bit thicker and the detail on it because it helped hide imperfections. It fit like a glove and was comfortable to wear all night, even with lots of dancing!

Amazingly Comfortable!

I got soooo many compliments on this dress!! I wanted a dress that I was going to be able to move and be comfortable as I anticipated dancing all night. I read all the reviews and was not disappointed. I wore the dress for almost 10 hours straight and there was not one uncomfortable moment. I usually wear a size 14 and the dress was big on me. One of the reasons I decided to belt it. The fabric does have give, so go down a size. Loved it so much, renting it for a different wedding this weekend!

Fitted and flaunts the curves!

The dress had beautiful laser cut lace detailing and the one shoulder detail was fun without overdoing it. The dress hugs your curves but artfully hides any problem area. I put on the size 10 first and it fit in the hips, but was very billowing up to (and I'm a D cup!). The size 8 was a tad more snug in the hips, but the fabric is thick and since it looked much better up top, I went with it and received LOTS of compliments. I highly recommend this dress for more formal affairs!

Loved this!

Dress was perfect, and just the right length even though I am only about 5"3. It does run a little large, I wonder if I could have gotten away with the 14. It was large at the top, and it is a stretchy fabric so there is a lot of give to it. I am a 38DD, and I would've liked it to be slightly tighter at the top, I did not even need to undo the zipper to put it on. Loved the dress, got compliments all night, and the ruffle on the shoulder layed nice and flat, so if you are questioning that part of the dress, don't!

I received a lot of compliments about this dress!

I loved how the fabric was stretchy and hugged my curves well. However, one side of the dress, right around the hips, bunched constantly. I think it might have been at the bottom of the zipper and this happened on both the 6 and 8. Otherwise, the dress was different, fun and flattering!

Felt fancy enough for a VERY nice rehearsal dinner

This was a last minute save that worked out so well! I would say the dress is probably 2 sizes larger, but it didn't ruin the styling. Even though it ran large it still looked very nice. It was also UNBELIEVABLY comfortable. Once again so appreciative of the customer service at RTR, simply perfect!

A lot of give! :)

I wore this to a rehearsal dinner and I absolutely loved it! It was stretchy but I did feel like it ran a little big in the waist. It fit perfectly in the chest and hips though. It has a lot of give so if you're going to an event with good food...eat up! :) You need to rent this!

I have had issues with previous Badgley Mischka dresses running small! Now this time, it was way too big. Plus my husband kept rearranging to puffy shoulder piece. He said it drove him crazy to look at.

It was super comfortable and looked like a million dollars!

It fit fantastic. Everyone mentioned before that it ran large so I didn't order an extra size and it was perfect. I'm quite busty so I always worry about getting a larger size in a dress but didn't need to with this! I loved it and wasn't uncomfortable all night. It's delivered in an amazing bag and was a first class process from start to finish!

I loved this dress but didn't LOVE the way it fit.

It was a little lumpy around the hips, but I may be between sizes. The inner lining is super soft and stretchy which was great. I have very sensitive skin and the cutouts in the outer layer of the fabric irritated my under arms a bit - but nothing horrible!

I had a black tie event. This dress seemed perfect online, but was so disappointing.

When I got this dress delivered, it was really pretty, but the shoulder detail was really worn and flat. That took away from the upscale feel of the dress. When I tried on the 10, it was so stretched out that it bunched in weird places. I typically wear a 12 and this dress was literally loose in two place. Horrible first experience, don't know that I will try it again.

Comfy dress for a formal affair!

I loved this dress. I wore it for a black tie wedding in the fall and it was the perfect choice. I got compliments all night and with the stretchy fabric was really comfortable dancing through the night! The fabric was VERY stretchy, I ordered the 4 and 6 and even the 4 was a little loose so keep that in mind. The flutter on the sleeve was as pictured and added a nice flair to the dress. Don't hesitate to rent it!
